A reminder from Kevin of BlueCord.org. Be sure to go to his site for all the details and to submit your own.
It is almost time for another Biblical Studies Blog Carnival. The next blog carnival will be hosted here on Blue Cord. We are approaching the end of the month, so that means it is time to start submitting your favorite blog posts from February to be included in the carnival. Please submit your nominations for the posts you found to be most engaging, most entertaining, most informative, or most __________ (insert your own adjective here). We try to include the widest variety of topics possible, so feel free to include anything you want — within the following guidelines:
- Academic: Posts must represent an academic approach to the discipline of biblical studies rather than, for instance, a devotional approach. This does not mean that posts have to be written by an academic, PhD, or professor — amateurs are more than welcome! Nor does it mean that posts must take a historical critical approach — methodological variety is also encouraged.
- Biblical Studies: Blogs must be broadly focused on discipline of biblical studies and cognate disciplines, including Ancient Near East, Hebrew Bible/Old Testament, Christian Origins/New Testament, Intertestamental/Second Temple literature (e.g., LXX, Dead Sea Scrolls, Philo, Josephus, etc.), Patristics, Biblical Criticisms and Hermeneutics, Biblical Studies and popular culture, among other things.
The blog carnival is also the place to draw attention to new blogs. If you are aware of any new biblioblogs that have been started during the month of February, be sure to let us know.
You may submit nominations for the blog carnival by mailing them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. In your e-mail, please include the following information:
- The title and permalink URL of the blog post you wish to nominate and the author’s name or pseudonym.
- A short (two or three sentence) summary of the blog post.
- The title and URL of the blog on which it appears (please note if it is a group blog).
- Include “Biblical Studies Carnival XXVII” in the subject line of your e-mail.
- Your own name and e-mail address.
While the carnival tries to include as many submissions as possible, it is not always possible to accept all nominations. The carnival is intended to highlight the best posts from the previous month, and judgment calls sometimes have to be made on whether a particular post is suitable for the carnival. We do try to include at least one post from each blog that it submitted.
For more information, please see the Biblical Studies Blog Carnival page.
